We have egg on our face! In last week’s edition, we expressed our excitement about a new map of Kingdom movements in North America – and then, in our excitement, neglected to provide the link!!!! Please forgive any inconvenience. Note that, in the control panel at the left, you can choose to include movements, trainers and/or practitioners. It’s awesome! : ) https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1j03BM18X8TdYRZBeA3lZQirY204v1lug&ll=42.470707577114425%2C-87.129002040625&z=5 read more…

5) New Book, “Live the Impossible,” Will Get You Dreaming Again

5) New Book, “Live the Impossible,” Will Get You Dreaming Again

Are you letting the limits of your current-day life hold you back from a life-long quest to be on-mission for Christ and the Great Commission? In Live the Impossible, author Jenny Smith (who compiles the Member Care Resource List we’ve distributed on Brigada) shares what it’s like to live with paralysis. With honesty and humor, faith and fortitude, Jenny shows us how we can all live life on-mission even if it seems impossible — even when life doesn’t go as planned. From the moment you read the foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada, to the last page of this book, you’ll be hooked. (Doug: I’ve seen a pre-publication copy.) Launches July 11th (the anniversary of the injury that put Jenny into a wheelchair). Don’t miss the earth-moving book. Pre-order the book right now at https://www.amazon.com/Live-Impossible-Wheelchair-Places-Imagine-ebook/dp/B0964DPCJB. read more…

6) Sending Supplies to the Unreached Spot? Use an ITEC Drone

One of my Asian friends grew up in a village that is literally 5 days’ walk from the nearest road. Five. Days. I (Doug) tried to charter a helicopter once to go see him. At the time, it was impossible. But I could have sent an ITEC drone with supplies – if then were now — because now is a cool time to be alive. : ) Hint: It can drop loads when you want.

7) Missio Nexus Has Posted The 2021 Compensation Report

Every year, Missio Nexus does a study on compensation for senior missions leaders. If you’re concerned as to whether or don’t your compensation packages are current, this is the definitive place to find the answers. Yes – you have to join, but you can always start by joining as an individual, then join as an org later when it’s a benefit. (We at Team Expansion were moved to join as an org once Missio Nexus came up with a group health solution. Until then, I (Doug) was an individual member too.) This is state of the art.
